4 Haiku: Megafauna Ranchers of Wyoming

Inspired by a road trip from California to Colorado, these are some haiku from the post-apocalyptic environs of the American west. Even though these lands have become savage, dangerous, and civilization as we know it has been destroyed, there is still beauty here.

This is the third of four installments. The first was this past Friday and the second was on Monday. The last will be this Friday.

Beefullo herds roam
Two stories at the shoulder
Brought down by steel rope.

Lighting strikes The Spike
Deafening thunder burns bright
Power for the year.

Stampedes warn the ear,
Behind the crackling hooves
Come the bristlewolves.

Cleansing floods sweep
Large bones clear from the ravines
Unlucky homes too.
